Blackburn is a gifted writer and philosopher, and he has written an introduction to philosophy that is engaging and accessible (few other intros are either). Would serve as an introduction to the topic for those who intend to study philosophy as well as those who are simply intelligent, well-read people.

I agree with very little of what Blackburn says in the book, yet it was very informational and thought inducive. A great way to gain a philosophical foundation.
